Linux HATES Me - Daily Driver CHALLENGE Pt.1

Comentarios

  • NOTE: The issue I had with Pop!_OS has been fixed for some time now. After the fix, a broken package should never be able to uninstall the desktop unless you specifically work around it. -LS

    • This kids mom, can doit better than Linusa gurl. esmain.info/goal/v-deo/pY6rqK9naM6apZY

    • To be fair.. if you read that warning, it told you it was going to uninstall all that. That's called, "a clue".

    • Same thing happened to me and my sister. We were trying to get the latest version of python installed.

    • @Humble Tyler it probably was fixed way before. He just didnt perform apt update after installation probably

    • @PhrontDoor well a broken package didnt uninstall his GUI. The system did stop it and gave Linus an error message. Linus then searched the web for a workaround and the system warned him second time and made him write an entire sentence to confirm he wanted to do that. Its like going on cmd to delete system32 because you cant do it by file explorer

  • Tried to put Linux on my old hp laptop. Could not find ANY distro that could run the audio. Linux absolutely is not an easy OS to set up and doesn’t work even on seven year old hardware, much less current generation. If you want to do word processing and spreadsheets, it’s fine. But when the installers can’t get the audio set up on an older windows seven laptop, the developers need to go back to the drawing board. I have two older hp laptops and spent the better part of three weeks trying to get the various distros to work on either of them to no avail. No audio or sirens or weird sounds. Turning off the audio was no help as the OS would turn it back on randomly. Until these kinds of problems are solved, Linux is a nonstarter. You’d think getting basic parts of the system right would be a priority for SOMEONE but as people I asked for help from kept saying, “Linux is supposed to be an ADVENTURE!” An adventure is somebody else in deep shit far away. As for me, Linux can wait until it actually works. Right now, it doesn’t.

  • 11:19 did the candian guy with a french last name just pronounce nouveau no-voo? yes yes he did

  • Seriously Linus & team, thanks for this

  • I've been using Mint for several years. I love Cinnamon over Gnome or KDE. But my primary rig is still Win 10 for games.

  • I'm looking forward to enjoying Linux on my X386 as soon as Gentoo finishes compiling. I started the compile in 1995!

  • How do you play cavestory without sound:p Thanks for being a creator!

  • Buccalottu

  • rm -rf this video. you hurt my head, congrats

  • Arch-based ftw (I use Arch btw 😉)

  • To be fair, even as an experienced Linux User I managed to uninstall my GUI once myself. Granted, I was playing around with GPU drivers and it was 5 am, but linux doesn't really stop or warn you... it just accepts you know what you are doing ^^

  • anything is better than windows

  • "What is xserver?" made my day, way to troll. :-D

  • "supports most controllers" is bad (it is, but that's just some random comment, just ignore it), but somehow all those Windows games which work with NOTHING but xbox controllers are fine? oh is this gonna be such a fair video...

  • Linus accidentally remove the System76 folder lol

  • Always wanted to get into Linux but never knew how to go

  • anyone know why they didn't go the hyper-V route

  • This kids mom, can doit better than Linusa gurl. esmain.info/goal/v-deo/pY6rqK9naM6apZY

  • *Linux Tech Tips.*

  • You're a noob. xD

  • Why does Luke have a game called Extreme Forklifting 💀💀

  • 25 year Linux veteran here, with about 10 years experience tilting at windmills trying to maintain an everyday use desktop PC. All your experiences are valid, and you successfully experienced Linux on the desktop. Let me explain... Given "free" = "free as in speech", you cannot have something that is both easy and free. Free in this context therefore means accommodating every religious preference of window manager, support library, whether or not to tolerate proprietary binary drivers in your kernel, etc. It means wading through an ocean of options complicated by every fandom imaginable, and about 10 billion more that you can't imagine. Where those options exist, complexity necessarily follows. Therefore, Linux will never be as easy as it seems to have been trying to be for 20 some-odd years of chasing the dream of "linux on the desktop". Does that mean Linux on the desktop has been a waste of time? Hell, no. Windows 11 is just now getting around to adding the beginnings of a virtual desktop functionality that Enlightenment users were enjoying in the early 2000s. Microsoft's rapidly improving security is directly attributable to the Linux community putting the final nail in the coffin to the concept "security by obscurity". In these ways, and others, Linux has achieved what the community set out to accomplish - to change the way computing works for *everyone*. Do you want PC gaming to look like XBox Game Pass, where you're locked out of the files, no mods, etc? Desktop Linux may be the only thing that keeps that from happening. But it is, and will always remain a sausage factory. From within which can be heard the occasional drinking song. And gunshots.

  • Imma update my twitter bio to "well-versed in the black arts of linux-ry"

  • "This will remove pop-desktop and gnome-shell" Linus: "i gonna do it anyway"

  • I once wanted to switch to Desktop Linux. I gave up after 2 hours of reading the many distros and what exactly the real daily usage differences between them, I ended up going to the rabbit holes into lots of tech terms and all their issues. So, after getting confused with all the distros, I went back to Windows.

  • Man, this is hilarious! It was exactly my experience with linux in the first time i use it

  • I feel like that command you ran was a troll post that destroys the os

  • 6:05 that has happened way too many times for me. After upgrading to windows 11 it hasn’t happened yet thankfully

  • This makes me feel better about my time with Linux. Thanks

  • It's funny, I've encountered right click menus showing up on the wrong monitor on Windows 10.

  • i already understood logistically why playing games on linux was difficult but it didnt occur to me until watching these videos (although i dont think that the videos intended to communicate this), why playing games on linux is so contrary to linux's philosophy. isn't linux about being open source and free? yet games are the complete opposite philosophy, they are proprietary and cost money. it kind of makes me think this is part of the reason why there is so little support for gaming on linux. this is the reason why i don't think id ever daily drive linux

  • Thanks for a great video, I disliked it tho so that I can F#$#$ with the you tube algo since they want to take it away I feel we should just jack up their algo until they fix it. So comments for engagement and dislike to throw off their ability to function right.

  • Whenever you get such a big, elaborate warning that it makes you literally spell out a full sentense of intent to override it - _please, FFS,_ _actually read_ that warning _in full_ before proceeding.

  • Jeez these distros also have readability issues.

  • RIP my dude DMX

  • i love how the blurred his steam name ‘linus” lmao

  • The biggest hassle I found is partitioning and formatting which I always seemed to have to do manually with most distros. Except for Pop!_OS, in which I just picked a drive and it took care of everything and installed.

  • I installed Pop!_os on my PC with literally no issues. I did not install grub, so I have to hold a key down on startup for my boot drive options and choose the drive to boot from. I had the easiest and smoothest experience and had Doom 2016 running under Proton with steam perfectly.

  • Part 2 ever coming ???

  • It's been a while since I've daily driven linux, but can't you just install a new file manager if you are unhappy with it?

  • When Linux nuked his desktop manager, i felt that so much xD

  • When I first started using Linux you had to recompile the kernel to use a ps/2 mouse. I’m not joking. It’s come a long way!

  • Linux nerds: "It's totally easy, you just install it!" Also Linux nerds: "LOL, Linus screwed up by not properly reading all these hilariously hoop-jumpy text boxes required to do basic stuff like executing an installer properly!"

  • You asked me, **WITH SUDO** something that involves shooting yourself in the foot. Are you sure you want to continue? "yes" Dope. See you when you get out of the ER. "WHY DID I SHOOT ME IN THE FOOT??"

  • I love LTT as a content producer. But I'd like to think that they are making up all this drama for views. Linux is not THAT hard. Just do plain old ubuntu, it works right out the box. But of cos, why choose something that just works? That would result in an uninteresting 5 min video...

    • linux is not that user friendly. The point of this video is to show the problems a new user who has no previous knowledge about linux or any contacts they could use to help themselves familiarize themselves with linux would face. And no. ubuntu does not work right out of the box. It would face the same hardware compatibility issues that other distros face and it's not meant for gaming. You have to set everything up yourself anyway

  • ok no caps here a month 30 days who broke or was this just a bad idea you flushed down the toilet or should you and luke give all your fans a freebie and both of you buy some temporary hair dye 😁

  • Maybe try test running these Linux distorts in Virtual Machines in the future, just as a little suggestion, y’know. 🤷‍♂️

  • Linux tech tips

  • okay ngl this was scaring me because i planned to move to linux, and i just moved and its so simple in my eyes

  • Linux is very user friendly, it's just very picky who it's friends are

  • Bruh imagine you watch half the video and decide to get pop os, watch the rest master and see what happens to Linus 😂😂😂

  • Linus Tech Tips: Linus. The POP! OS Pop Shop is simply a software center. Many Linux distributions have a software center. Now that wasn't supposed to happen with Steam. It was supposed to install Steam NOT take out the whole desktop environment. Of course you should of payed attention to what was on screen, and not selected Yes. Yes, this could of happened to anyone, but still they should read what is on the screen or asked someone well versed in Linux if it was ok to select Yes. 10:37 At 16:32 The items marked with a blue box are installed. The items on the left ARE open-source, and the items on the right ARE NOT open-source, so you have 4 items installed there, and 1 of them IS NOT open-source. The problem the other Gentleman had with Steam is unusual. After you click on install you only need to type in your password once then press enter. Unless he accidentally typed in the wrong password the 1st time.

  • Linux - Home Office check Linux - NAS check Linux - Moviecenter check Linux - Gaming still Windows 10 mostly in VM

  • It's clear he went into this with a closed mind. Chose a distro based on how many "listicles" recommended it... I don't know what the point of this was.

  • I have had the same issues with various Linux distros, I just wanted to run some apps and stuff and replace windows, but I just always feel like a newb....wah wahh..sudo this 🖕 Linux. I might need a few bottles of hair dye....gulp

  • I've used Linux on and off since Red Hat back in 1998, but I've never used it as a daily driver, and these are the very reasons why. After over 20+ years, Linux still can't make a system that just works out of the box for everything your average gaming user would need. I'm sure there are many that are glad it's hard and "Normies" can't use it, but I hate to tell you, it will never replace windows until there's a distro that doesn't require you to jump through many flaming hoops to be able to get set up and use for gaming and daily tasks without having to compile your own apps to get things to work properly.

  • Well a lot of help you guys are for someone trying to decide between PopOS! and Mint. :P

  • like 70% of my linux problems are shown here and i am not big on gaming

  • He ate the other Chad

  • I don't get why Pop!_OS did that when you tried to install Steam. When I built my new computer over the summer, I got Pop! (based on the video Anthony did about it) because I'm too cheap for a Windows license and Steam came already installed.

  • The black art of linux... lol. Lovin' it!

  • What the hell, I'm trying to watch linus and my ad was just linus skipping work

  • I haven't looked to see if anyone has said this yet. But. Windows 11 looks a lot like mac OS If they think that will grab mac users I doubt it. I'm a windows user and wont go mac just because of their overpriced bullshit

  • As a person with a lengthy education in IT (which involved programming, to provide context), I think the main difference is how people find workflows intuitive and easy. Linux users seems to prefer controls through text/input, while the common users of Windows prefer control through visuals. The mindsets are different, which makes the transiton hard. Also, what I think is a bit sad is how hostile some parts of the Linux community is. If you really want Linux to grow, focus more on the new uses experience than trying to sell the endless customization and control story. For texhnical users that is all fine and good, but in the grand picture that user mass is so much smaller than the rest. Hoping to see Linux grow, as more options the better. A high five to all you hard working people out there!

  • Really Linus???

  • I have only worked with Linux on servers for my job. Recent I sadly my beefy gaming laptop for a Lenovo Flex 5. Installed POP OS on it so I could run some games. I did run into launch issues with csgo but somehow fixed it, not it runs quite smooth for a non gaming laptop and seems to work fine. never had the issues linus ran into

  • Pronouncing Ubuntu like an idiot is the most annoying occupational dialect issue ever.

  • i would recommend Zorin OS

  • This is kinda why I still kinda don't want to switch. I love the Freedom of Linux... but I have enough Headaches getting my Software to run and spending extra time on this is just hard

  • I use Linux for software development everyday but I will not use it for other purposes such as gaming, entertainment, and editing documents. As you suggested, I don’t want so many customizations and just need one way that works well.

  • It happened to me a year ago when I tried to install steam on Ubuntu 18.04. It gave some warning and asked for my confirmation to apply some solutions for those warning. However, these solutions removed my desktop manager

  • funny how glasswire is not natively linux compatible

  • I installed Salient OS, logged into Steam, installed games and Glorious Eggroll Proton mods, played a bunch of my old games, and BOUGHT games and played them. Doom, Wolfenstien, wow what fun. But i am running an AMD video card, and that makes gaming in Linux easy..

  • install gentoo

  • Tip for first time Linux users: don't be afraid of the text command interface. It often needs only a single line and with a bit of googling AND ACTUALLY READING WHAT THEY SAY everyone can use it.

  • Why is someone named Linus so bad at Linux?

  • YES! THANK YOU, every time i seriously tried getting into linux it was excactly like this. nothing is ever simple, nothing ever simply works, every little thing i tried doing meant spending days spent on digging through god awful linux forums and trying to decipher endless wall of white gibberish constantly running through my screen. then i remembered how happy i was when i could click Setup icon, next next next and everything just worked without having to hack into the matrix first. nice friendly os designed for actual people by pointing at things with your hand and clicking twice. not this god awful shit designed by robots where everything is done by decrypting long complicated commands, arguments and rules you need to learn first from 4 kilometers of technical documentations to be able to READ A FUCKING TXT FILE, OR DELETE A FUCKING FOLDER. true strory. thouse couple day with linux was sincerely the worst experience i've ever had on a computer. made me greatly appreciate how good windows is.

  • Pantheon can actually be used on other Linux distributions as well. It's officially supported as an option in NixOS, for example.

  • I see a lot of people making fun of the fact that Linus willingly uninstalled his GUI, but can anyone tell me *why* installing Steam uninstalled the GUI? I understand it warned him, but I can't find anyone willing to explain why it would even do that in the first place.

  • 19:09 typical Linus Drop Tips

  • Solus will give any windows user an easy time. Gaming setup is easy.

  • Did Linus realize he lost the competition when he went back on his windows PC to get Manjaro?

  • Linux is too hard, it supposes users to be able to read and to understand what they read... Just try "format C:\" on Windows ( Warning!!! That will wipe out your whole Hardisk and OS without any sort of Warning)

  • Novice should use Debian Stable branch and nothing else

  • How is it Linux's fault that you didn't read the warning it gave you before you typed "Yes, do as I say"? This is the very definition of a PICNIC error.

  • I remember when I used Linux the first time decades ago. I definitely fucked stuff up because I was a undereducated on Linux. But as a computer user, anything that says "do as I say" is not something good. Since it's a force. Lol also don't give up.

  • i seriously hate linus for this

  • LInux has only been around for 30 years, perhaps one day it'll be useful.

  • Linux is NOT Windows. You have to do SOME homework before attempting an installl, as you would with ANY unfamiliar OS. Even Joe Citizen knows that. Very disappointing in the lack of research in this attempt. It will only serve to turn a lot of people off Linux that would otherwise have benefitted if a little research was done. You even have a Linux guy on you Team, so why not consult him?

  • Just stop using these crap distros

  • Looks more like a halt than a hard reset

  • 6:16 "it's like it(windows) knows what's going to happen" because it does know what's going to happen that's why you go threw all the hell of using Linux. we all would love to just continue to use easy windows, but the spying and totalitarianism is the what's making us all switch.

  • After install to pop_os, running sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade might have fixed a bunch of issues. Also after booting into the desktop-less distro, reinstalling the desktop packages probably would have fixed it.

  • I thought it was going to turn out a hardware issue that crippled your Pop install after seeing Windows freaking out prior to your test. I'm glad to say that I've never experienced something as manic as that in Windows. Windows generally works for the majority, though I have to say that Windows 7 was the last relase that I have any love for...Windows 8 was an abonination, Windows 10 started well but got worse as they tried to tidy its split personality and Windows 11 will never be a destination for me. I can fully understan why so many buisenesses stayed with XP/NT, they were the best releases Microsoft ever managed!

  • i am not an expert but i also think "Yes, do it as I say" is a bad thing to confirm

  • Conclusion: PEBKAC

  • More important to check your GPU driver than "Best linux distro for gaming" xD because you can install Lutris on any linux distro, not only on some bloated "gaming" one.

  • It really shows how much optimised and user friendly Windows is. We take it for granted.
